January 25 – Slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention Month: Khara Jabola-Carolus, Director, Hawaii State Committee on Status of Women

February 22Womenʻs History Month – Sitting on the Schoolhouse Steps Waiting to be Allowed In…The Right to Learn, The Right to Teach, The Right to Define:
The Struggle for Women’s Access Education From 1640 to The Formation of AAUW in 1881 Carol Hogard

We will examine the contributions of the early agitators who argued for women’s right to learn and the activists who built the first schools. Then, we will discuss those who were denied the right to preach in public and those who successfully challenged the probation and won. Next, we will include how women went from the right to preach to the right to teach. Who were the agitators and who were the activists? We will then end with an example of the right to define by discussing the long struggle of African-American women’s to define their womanhood against deeply negative cultural models. There are surprises and joys along the way into the Schoolhouse door.
